Be Kind

Be kind, be kind, be kind

Sometimes you just can’t help what you were named
Sometimes you just can’t stay to watch your children grow up
Sometimes the boogeyman is real
Sometimes accidents happen despite all your precautions
Sometimes the dog really did eat your homework 
Sometimes this moment is all you are given
Sometimes that is all that you have left to give
Sometimes Kindness is the only thing you can control 
Because there, but for circumstances, go I.

I think, I thought, I knew

I think, I thought, I knew
i thought this time
                that i’d be fine.
(I’d Learned so much from You).
i thought this time
                i had a plan.
(I’d Know just what To Do).
i thought this time
                there’d be no pain.
(I’d just Remember the times We’d shared).
i thought this time
                there’d be no tears.
(I’d Smile instead, knowing just how much You cared).
For days, then weeks, then months I Thought
Since thinking made it easier not to Feel.
But when at last my Thinking stopped, I Knew:

                it just takes time to heal.
